Home Sweet Home

We just arrived home from Orlando. My father made it through the surgery with flying colours. Now the hard part - we have to wait for five days until the pathology results come back as to whether the cancer has spread or if they removed it all when the doctor removed the prostate. My mother is a wreck, she thought that once the surgery was over then they were in the clear. Please keep my father in your prayers. If the results come back that the cancer has spread, then he will have to undergo chemotherapy and possibly radiation treatment. My heart is very heavy right now. I can't imagine my life without my father. More importantly, I think that my mother would be heartbroken without him.

As for stitching, well I stitched on the trip down to Orlando but I haven't worked on anything else. My heart is not in it. Milsey says that perhaps it would make me feel better, but somehow I don't think so. Maybe tonight while I immerse myself in Big Brother 10 and General Hospital. We shall see. Talk more later.

It is very difficult to concentrate on anything in those circumstances. The waiting is the worst part of this whole process. Once the results are in you can deal with whatever you're faced with. I've been where you are and know what it is like. Thoughts and prayers with you and the family

Glad to hear that surgery went well, now hoping for positive outcomes from the test. I have been watching GH since my Middle school was under construction in the mid 70's and only went to school from 7-12 am!!!
